Island Kingdom sets the standard though it's not a very high one and one of the less exposed types is preferred. Cincuenta Pasos has posted a couple of promising efforts over 6f here and should go close, but ISABELLA BEETON is just preferred. The latter found only one too good over track and trip on her debut with a subsequent winner back in third and she gets the nod. Spirit Or Soul is another to consider with improvement expected on his debut third at Wolverhampton.
